Making Europe a safer, healthier and more productive place to work
Every year in the European Union there are 5,720 fatal work-related accidents and millions of people are injured or have their health seriously harmed in the workplace. Workers and employers need to be made aware of the risks that they face and how to manage them.
Sometimes, information is all that is required for an employer or worker to address safety and health issues effectively. The EU-OSHA aim to be the central provider of that information and ensure that it is relevant to every user, regardless of size of enterprise or sector of activity. Set up in 1996 by the European Union and located in Bilbao, Spain, EU-OSHA is the main EU reference point for safety and health at work.
